It's Apparent you're a parent...

I've gotten an email that said things like this before, and I wanted to make up my own list.

It's apparent you're a parent if...

...Your bookshelves are "decorated" in your house with Lego creations and other toys. (or you leave room for them...)
My bookshelf was the "oven" for my little girls one night...
A Barbie "doll house" on my chair...

...You frequently smell like spit-up, milk, peanut butter...

...You have peanut butter, dirt, jelly, or glitter on your shirt, jeans or face.

...You say things like, "Don't lick ___________" -Fill it in- like Mad libs! Your brother's feet, the balloon, etc.,

...You have sympathy for the mom/dad in the store with a screaming child. You look at them and think, "I feel your pain..."

...You wish you could have certain sayings on a repeat button like, "It's time for bed" or "Brush your teeth" or "Clean your room"...

-Sometimes you wish you had a sign that says, "She dressed herself..." for all the crazy outfits that preschoolers (and teens!) wear!

-The only band-aids you have in your house are Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer, Peanuts or Spiderman.

-You know where all the bathrooms are in every store/ place you go, ever since you potty trained your toddler.

-You've wished there was a way you could make your child go to sleep instantly, for a nap or bedtime...

-You've been in many, many conversations about your child/ children instead of yourself, and enjoyed it anyway!

-You've read one kids'  book so many times that you have it memorized! (i.e., "Goodnight Moon")

-You've played "Candyland" way too many times, and you know that "Chutes and Ladders" isn't much better...

-You know the pain of stepping on a Lego in bare feet...

-You've vacuumed up Legos and Barbie shoes and didn't get them out of the vacuum cleaner...

Feel free to add your own!

  1. Hee, hee ... I like this!

    - You've decided to put off new carpet until the kids move out ... even if your current carpet is 9 shades of brownishness.

    - You invest in a variety of dips to encourage your children to eat. And consider ketchup a vegetable.

    - You still use your stroller to carry everyone's stuff ... even if your youngest no longer rides in it.

    :) Thanks for the laugh!
